Chrome sucks. None of my wheels are chrome. Chrome has a tendency to flake off after a couple years. All of my shiney wheels are polished aluminum.

Which wheels are you refering to?

Okay - the jealously didn't officially set in until I got to the pictures of the Straman Convertible.

**** you! Seriously though - your Straman Convertible is in great shape and your wheels look fantastic! The tires and rims in the last two pictures were my favorites.

pic 1: polished stock 84/85 NA wheels.
pic 2: polished stock AE/86T wheels.
pic 3: polished stock G35coupe wheels.
pic 4: Motegi Racing Touge 17x9 +24 wheels.

Stock as they come. Not chromed. brushed aluminum look.

i did what AZ_ZBum said to do in his tutorial and my wheels look great. Just takes some time with sanding and if you have any arthritis it can hurt a little bit.
